In which Wildbook did the issue occur? Flukebook
What operating system were you using? MacOS 11.6
What web browser were you using? Google Chrome
What is your role on the site? researcher/administrator
What happened? I wanted to check that if a citizen scientist uploaded a photo for an encounter submission that they would have the ability to see their submission and check in on it. I received the email with the link to the encounter submission, and the email states:
"We will use your information to assist a global community of researchers and citizen scientists working to better understand and protect the dolphins and whales of the world.
The information that you have submitted represents an encounter that we track. Each encounter is assigned a unique number, and you can view that encounter at any time using the link above or by going to Flukebook. We will keep you informed of any changes to your submitted encounter and email you if the whale is matched to another one within this Wildbook database. We will also let you know if/when and where your animal is resighted by other community members."
However, when I click on the link it makes me sign in to Flukebook before I can see the encounter I submitted, because I am requesting something of “higher privileges”. Citizens won’t have a Flukebook login, and we only want them to be able to see the photos they post, not have access to our entire catalog so I don’t want to make them all collaborators.
Unless each citizen has to make their own profile through Flukebook? Where they can only see their submissions… I am not sure if that’s what we need to tell people to do?
What did you expect to happen? I expected to get the email with the encounter link, and I expected to be able to view the photos I (acting as a citizen scientist) had submitted to “help out science”.
What are some steps we could take to reproduce the issue? Submit a photo as an encounter submission without being logged in and see if you can access the link you are sent about your encounter without having to login to Flukebook.
